Couple complete the London Marathon in memory of their baby daughter

At the weekend, 31 supporters completed the Virgin Money London Marathon for Child Bereavement UK, raising c. £100,000 for our work with bereaved families. Amongst them were Hughenden residents, Martin and Paula Sweeney (pictured), who ran in memory of their daughter Chloe, who was stillborn 21 years ago. Paula said:

“Martin and I have been together for 30 years and married for 25, and we both agree that the main reason we’re still together and have a strong relationship is because we were supported by Child Bereavement UK. They taught us how to live without Chloe."  

A massive thank you to our amazing team of marathon runners this year and to everyone who supported them!

Two heads are better than one when it comes to mental health

Child Bereavement UK is pleased to contribute to Heads Together, a campaign which aims to eliminate stigma and change the conversation on mental health. The campaign is being spearheaded by our Royal Patron HRH The Duke of Cambridge, along with The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

As part of the Heads Together initiative, we have joined the #oktosay conversation with this short film featuring bereavement support practitioners Pam and Christine.

Don Giovanni at Opera Holland Park
We are thrilled to announce that Child Bereavement UK will be the beneficiary of a special one-night performance of Mozart’s Don Giovanni at Opera Holland Park in London on Monday 12 June 2017.

This will be the second year that Child Bereavement UK has benefited from the support of Opera Holland Park. Last year the company gave a special performance of Puccini's La Bohème to supporters and friends, generating in excess of £50,000 for bereaved children and their families.
